I was not originally going to purchase this Urban Decay Vice Limited Palette, but after walking into Ulta and seeing how gorgeous it was, it won me over. I already own Vice 2 and Vice 3, and they are some of my favorite eyeshadow palettes in my collection. Urban Decay does an incredible job at providing a mix of shades and finishes in each palette. And did I mention the pigmentation of the eyeshadow is always perfect? I’ve got full swatches of the palette inside!
The Urban Decay Vice Limited Palette is a mix of cult favorite shades and brand new, never before seen shades. The packaging is stunning, as always. It’s a bright neon yellow-green with a jeweled logo in the center. The palette pops open with what seems like a spring, so it’s super easy to open up. This is also the first palette that Urban Decay has created since reformulating their eyeshadow, so it’s a great chance to test out their formulation, pigmentation, and overall quality.
The Vice Limited Palette contains twenty shades, all in different finishes. There are jewel-tones, a few brights, a lot of wearable neutrals, and some fantastic matte shades in the mix. The palette also comes with a double-ended eyeshadow brush which I love. These brushes are actually really nice and are definitely not throw-away brushes that you usually get with other makeup brands.
FIRST ROW: These are your stunningly pigmented neutral shades. You’ve got a bunch of browns in various shimmering tones, as well as a champagne beige and an orange-copper. All of these were super saturated in color and only needed one swipe to put down great color.
SECOND ROW: In this row we see some jewel tones, with a shimmering emerald and navy blue, as well as a matte black that Urban Decay is known for, “Perversion.” It was actually the one shade in the palette that I thought could have been much more pigmented.
THIRD ROW: My personal favorite, this row contains your pinks and purples and a random metallic gold. The shade all the way to the left, “Provocateur,” is absolutely stunning and can be worn for so many different occasions. All of these shades were really opaque and pigmented. That metallic gold is also a very true gold, meaning it is not too warm or cool-toned.
LAST ROW: Neutral makeup lovers rejoice! The last row contains your super light, classic shades with a mix of shimmer and matte. These shades make great transitional colors, eyebrow highlights, and they are also wonderful to use to blend out more intense eyeshadow shades.
Overall, I think this palette is beautiful. If you’re a fan of Urban Decay, you won’t be disappointed. The SOLE color in the palette that lacked pigmentation was “Perversion,” which is known to usually be a very intense black shade from Urban Decay, so that is really the only disappointment.
The Urban Decay Vice Limited Palette is limited edition and is available at Ulta Beauty stores nationwide as well as online. Each palette retails for $58.00USD. I’ve got a Valentine’s Day makeup look coming up next and I used this palette to achieve the look, so stay tuned!
